Khokhlachev five points, Pavelka 44 saves as Spitfires crush Knights

WINDSOR, Ont. - Alexander Khokhlachev had three goals and two assists and Jaroslav Pavelka stopped 44 shots as the Windsor Spitfires crushed the visiting London Knights 8-1 on Sunday in Ontario Hockey League play.

Kerby Rychel, Alex Aleardi and Remy Giftopoulos each had a goal and two assists for the Spitfires (26-31-8), who have won back-to-back games, and Josh Ho-Sang and Emerson Clark scored the others.

Olli Maatta scored the lone goal for the Knights (47-13-5), who dropped their first game in regulation in 10 outings.

Anthony Stolarz took the loss after giving up five goals on 24 shots in two periods of action. Jake Patterson replaced Stolarz to start the third and stopped 2-of-5 shots in relief.

Windsor went 2 for 7 on the power play while London failed to score on six chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
